Though in one of the sagas, Ragnar Lodbrok is referred to having to as
having coated his heavy leather Breeks (pants) with tar as extra armor
against a Dragon - others put it as just wearing heavy hide pants to
kill some snakes in Sweden. Either way this suggests the use of heavy
leather as leg protection which would not be out of line with other
armor that common soldiers wore.
